APPLE IS CONTINUING its run of borkage with the announcement of a rare product recall.
The firm isn't asking iPhone or MacBook owners to hand over their expensive gadgets but is instead calling for the return of bork-prone wall plug adapters designed for use in Hong Kong, Singapore, and the United Kingdom.
Apple says the affected Apple three-prong wall plug adaptors, which shipped with Mac and certain iOS devices between 2003 and 2010 and were also included in the Apple World Travel Adapter Kit that apparently exists, "may break and create a risk of electrical shock if touched."
The firm says it's aware of six incidents where users have been shocked by the old adapters, which it's now recalling for immediate replacement.
If you're the unlucky owner of a shonky Apple AC adapter, which the firm explains are "white, with no letters in the inside slot where it attaches to an Apple power adapter", you'll need to hand over the serial number for your at-least-seven-year-old Mac, iPad, iPhone or iPod.
Replacements can be arranged via Apple Support, an Apple retail store or an authorized Apple service provider. µ
